Description

Hello,

I have a Baofeng "UV-5RHT" it has 8 watt output. I can not find the "RHT" model anywhere on this site. Also the CHIRP WIKI does not mention the "UV-5RHT" model.
My question ist, which model should i use for CHIRP programing? The firmware version is BFB298.

Best regards,
cezigro

Hello cezigro,

The rule of thumb for Baofeng UV-5R-like radio models is as follows...

Option 1 (2 bands - 2 transmit power levels): choose Vendor: Baofeng / Model: UV-5R
Option 2 (2 bands - 3 transmit power levels): choose Vendor: Baofeng / Model: BF-F8HP
Option 3 (3 bands - 2 transmit power levels): choose Vendor: Radioddity / Model: UV-5RX3

So for a UV-5RHT you would choose Option 2.

Hello Jim,

thank you very much for reply. I have one more question: Every key from 1,2...0 and * and # has an option/shortcut, if you press the * for two seconds its began to scan. However it works only with * = scan and # = Keylock. The other shortcuts like 0 = SQL or the key 5 = WN does not work. If i press 0 for two seconds it shows me the battery voltage but it should go to the squelch menu. If I press the key 5 for two seconds nothing happens. Is this a bug or should i config this somewhere in CHIRP to get the "shortcuts" work properly?

Best regards,
cezigro

To answer your question, they are not shortcuts. They are just "labels" identifying the names of the corresponding single digit menus (0-9). You still have to press the [MENU] key (to put the radio into MENU mode) followed by the appropriate 1 or 2 digit menu number (the same as you would do for menus 10, 11, 12, 13, ..., 40) to access the desired menu.

Visit the Miklor website in order to get many of your questions answered. Your radio is basically a BF-F8HP variant so make a point to visit that particular section.
